Searching for the Best 2.5 Inch Drawer Pulls Looking for 2 ½ inch drawer pulls can be a big job, but it also can be an amazing adventure that will result in brand new hardware for your cabinets. Whether you need the 2 ½ inch drawer pulls for your kitchen or bathroom, there are many things that should be understood first. For example, what does it mean if the pull measures 2 ½ inches? Surprisingly, it is not the size of the entire pull, but rather the distance from the two holes for the screws. 2 ½ inch drawer pulls are among the most common sizes, although they are considered non-standard. If you are unsure what size pulls you need, take the time to measure the distance between the two holes. If the drawers are brand new, then it may be possible to use whatever size you want, depending on whether or not there are already holes drilled into the drawer. As you shop for 2 ½ inch pulls, it is important to keep several things in mind before making a decision. Size Although the 2 ½ inch pull size has been discussed when it comes to the distance between the holes, there are also some other sizing issues that are important. Most 2 ½ inch pulls are rather small with very little design that actually goes on the drawer itself. Some are extremely simple with just one piece of metal attaching the two holes, while others have a small ornate pattern on them. In most cases, drawers that require 2 ½ inch pulls will be rather small, so they are typically meant for fairly small drawers. However, it never hurts to take a sample of the drawer pull home and hold it up to the drawer so that you can be sure it will look proportionate. An undersized drawer pull just does not look right, and you may end up with stripped screws after a very short time if the size of the pull is not a good size for the drawer. Style Whenever you are choosing any kind of drawer pull, the style is always an important consideration. Remember that very ornate drawer pulls can be rather difficult to clean, especially when they are the smaller 2 ½ inch size. This is why so many of the available pulls that are this smaller size are so plain in comparison to the larger drawer pulls. In general, when choosing a style for your drawer hardware, look for a style that will go well with the rest of the kitchen or bathroom. Antique drawer handles will look rather strange in a country kitchen, an rustic styles do not mix well with modern or contemporary styles. Remember that you are not just choosing a drawer pull that you like, but you are also choosing one that must match with the rest of the room. Separating the style of the hardware out from the style of the rest of the room is always a mistake. Materials Another important thing to think about when choosing 2 ½ inch pulls is the material of the handle. Most handles are made of metal, especially these smaller sizes, but there are a few that come in glass or plastic. Metal is definitely the most durable material, although glass is a very close second. Plastic tends to break very easily, so while those adorable figures made out of plastic may be very tempting to purchase, it is best to resist the temptation and look for a different material that will last a lot longer.
Tips for Selecting Kitchen Drawer Pulls Whether you are replacing your kitchen cabinets or not, new kitchen drawer pulls are a great way to change up the look of your kitchen without spending a lot of money. Kitchen drawer pulls can take just about any shape, color, or style you can think of, and they do not take a lot of time to install. However, selecting the right kitchen drawer pulls does involve making many decisions. You have to think about the style of the hardware compared to the style of the drawers. Then you have to think about the weight and size of the drawers to determine what size pulls you need. You also have to consider the various materials that kitchen drawer pulls are made out of. With all of these decisions, how can you know which drawer pulls will look best in your kitchen? Here are some tips to figuring it all out. Hardware Style Style is one of the most obvious things when it comes to décor of any kind. The way the hardware looks in the drawers it will go on is certainly very important. It should match the rest of the kitchen and complete the look, much like earrings or a necklace completes your personal look. Kitchen drawer pulls are like the finishing touches on a beautiful kitchen, and they can enhance the beauty of the kitchen if they are selected properly or look glaring and out of place if the wrong decision is made. When considering style, just think about the overall style of the kitchen. If you decided on an antique look, then antique drawer pulls are the answer, but if you have a very modern or contemporary look, then you will need something much more sleek and newer. Another part of choosing a style is the kind of kitchen drawer pull you select. Drawer pulls can either be knobs or handles, depending on which style you prefer. You may even want to take into consideration which of the two types feels better in your hand. Materials Another important option that is related to style is the material. Metal kitchen drawer pulls are the most popular right now, but many people opt instead of glass or plastic pulls. Metal pulls will last quite a bit longer than glass or plastic, although they are quite expensive and can be a bit limited in terms of color. However, what metal pulls lack in color, they make up for in the ability to have very ornate carvings and designs. Glass pulls have the benefit of offering a wide selection of colors and very intricate designs. In fact, people who really want a unique type of hardware for their kitchen or bathroom will probably want to opt for glass because of the many choices that are available. Plastic drawer pulls are the least expensive option, and they may offer many different colors and designs also, but often they are very cheap and do not last a long time. Be prepared to change the hardware out again in a couple of years if you opt for low grade plastic. More durable and expensive plastic may last longer than a couple of years. Drawer Size Finally, remember to take into account the size of the drawers. This part has two sides to it. First, think about the overall size of the pull and the size of the drawer face. The pull should be proportional to the front of the drawer. Second, think about how heavy the drawer is and how easy or difficult it is to pull out. Kitchen drawer pulls that are too small will not work well with very heavy or large drawers.
